Pointools has launched a new high-value software bundle for working with point clouds – the billions of measurement points collected by 3D laser scanners. This new “Pointools Suite” gives users a portfolio of applications and plugs-ins designed to streamline the conversion, processing, and reuse of point cloud models, and eliminates the need for time-wasting translations while maintaining the visual quality and accuracy of the data.

“By packaging these applications and plug-ins in a cost effective bundle, we are making it easier for project teams to work with 3D laser scan data inside their preferred CAD application environments,” commented Joe Croser, VP of Products at Pointools. “For a very competitive price, users can now convert raw point data into detailed 3D point cloud models. They can process and edit point clouds to generate high-definition movies, and they can reuse the same point cloud models inside a broad range of Autodesk, Rhino, and Google SketchUp apps.”

Pointools Suite includes Pointools POD Creator (to convert the broadest range of 3D laser scan formats), Pointools Edit (for selecting, editing, segmenting, and animating the largest point cloud models), and Pointools Plug-ins for Rhino, Google SketchUp, and Autodesk applications including AutoCAD, Civil 3D, Architecture, Map 3D, and Land Desktop. 

Pointools Plug-ins all reuse the same Pointools POD model file format to eliminate the need for time-wasting translations when working across applications environments. In addition, Pointools plug-ins enable AutoCAD, Rhino, and SketchUp users to increase modelling productivity by rapidly displaying the largest point cloud models on-screen whilst maintaining the highest levels of accuracy and visual quality.

The Pointools Suite is available to purchase now for GBP 3,250 (EUR 3,950 / USD 5,250) - representing a saving of 40 per cent when compared to the individual product list prices.
